Scene Classification

Our scene classification and analysis API identifies the apparent location of the scene in a given image or video. The system returns multiple scene labels and classifies them at scale. The model checks whether it is an indoor or outdoor space and groups the scene under possible categories and attributes, such as, outdoors on a farm, around sunny mountains, etc.

The scene analysis technology can be used in cases when it’s necessary to recognize the environment at one glance. For example, people who work with many images can use the system to quickly classify the pictures according to the content; providers of stock photos and videos can apply this technology to automatically generate labels for their content.
